Known industry insider and reliable source of leaks, Jason Schreier, has claimed that the next addition to the Far Cry franchise is already in the works.
The Kotaku top dog and known leaker took to Twitter to comment on Ubisoft’s recent earnings call, in which the company explained it would be launching five AAA games between April 2020 and March 2021.
We already know that three of these titles include Rainbow 6 Quarantine, Watch Dogs Legion and Gods & Monsters. The other two are yet to be revealed.
However, Schreier has now claimed that these two mystery projects are none other than a new Assassin’s Creed and a new Far Cry.
This makes sense considering how fast the Far Cry franchise has been growing over the past couple of years. Far Cry New Dawn was surprise-dropped on us all just a few months after the release of Far Cry 5, so it’s not too surprising to hear a sixth game is in the works.
Until we hear word from Ubisoft though, take the rumour with a pinch of salt for now.
Ubisoft’s earnings call seemingly wasn’t all good news though, as the company yet again made no reference to Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced way back in 2017 and, aside from a new trailer in 2018, it’s all been pretty quiet on the piggy-shaped front. Now that the game appears to be absent from the list of upcoming releases, fans have been left wondering what the heck is going on.
It’s now being speculated that the earliest we’ll see Beyond Good and Evil 2 hitting the shelves could be as late at mid-2021, though any clear confirmation of this remains to be seen. As the next generation of console gaming looms, it’s not known whether the game will be cross-gen.
I guess we’ll just keep waiting…
